For 2018 we are keeping the classic Fri/Sat mini-weekend intact, and offering an afternoon of small-group classes on Sunday as an optional add-on to your mini weekend base pass. Registration will open on Sunday April 1st, 2018 at 2pm (east coast time).
Fri/Sat Mini-Weekend base pass: this pass will include the Friday dance, 4 hours of leveled workshops on Saturday, and the Saturday night dance with the Boilermaker Jazz Band. (This is pretty much I *Heart* Bal "classic," if you will). This pass also includes the Sunday evening farewell dance, so if you are still in town, come on out and dance!
Optional Sunday add-on: this buy-up from the base pass includes 4 hours of small-group workshops for Levels A, B, & C on Sunday afternoon. (Available as an addition to a Fri/Sat Mini-Weekend or Dance Pass only. Not available as a stand-alone pass). These will be smaller than the Saturday classes and will give you an opportunity to work more closely with the instructors (we are aiming for no more than 10 leads/10 follows per group). These are everyone's favorite part of the weekend and tend to sell out.
Beginner Crash Course Saturday Pass: this specially discounted pass includes 4 hours of beginner Balboa instruction on Saturday, as well as the Saturday dance. It does not include any other of our weekend dances, but you are welcome to pay at the door for those.
As always, those who register earliest will get the very best deal and follows are especially encouraged to register early.

A note on price tiers
Just like last year, price tiers will be role-specific. We will have a certain number of each price tier reserved for follows and a certain number of each price tier reserved for leads, which means you are only competing with others in your role for great early bird discounts. Win.
All passes are non-refundable, but may be transferred to someone else if you follow all the rules listed here.
